Radical has unveiled its latest track-day toy, and its... well, radical...

Radical has followed up on its promise to unveil two new models on October 31, 2014 with the debut of the SR8 RSX. The new high-performance race car made its debut at the Circuit de Barcelona in Spain. Radical has high expectations for the SR8 RSX, labeling it as its most advanced, powerful, and aerodynamically developed open racing car.

Radical knows its market and it’s packaging the SR8 RSX with the belief that the car’s new technological features will go a long way in convincing its buyers in its niche market to pick it over the competition. It’s a task far easier said than done given its six-figure price tag. However, when the cost comes with a car that can push performance boundaries like no Radical before it could, there’s enough reason to justify spending that much money on a track-day toy.

The company also described the SR8 RSX as its new flagship model that offers an experience “closer to LMP competition”. With that kind of build-up, I’ll venture a guess that Radical is loving the attention being given to the SR8 RSX.

Radical SR8 RX Sets a New Record at Pageant of Power

Last year, aCaterham SP/300.R became the fastest car at the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power with a lap time of 61.89 seconds. The Caterham did all it could to defend its title this year, but a Radical SR8 RX turned out to be the fastest car this year.

With professional racecar driver, Robbie Kerr, behind the wheel, the British-built Radical completed a lap of the 1.2-mile circuit in just 55.29 second, smashing the previous record by 6.6 seconds. The SP/300.R was the second fastest car with a lap time of 56.53 seconds. The Radical didn’t end its supremacy there, as it also hit the fastest speed on the track: 129 mph.

The SR8 RX was entered in the "Racing Saloons & Track Day Cars" class, which helped it break the record, due to the track-focused nature of the cars competing in that class. The competition saw a total entry of 139 cars and bikes.
